Robert Cronkshaw - labourer married Priscilla Rothwell in 1827 in Haslingden.

Priscilla's son John Hill Rothwell was born in Haslingden 1826 and christened Aug 1827. His marriage cert shows Robert Cronkshaw as the father.

Looking for these three on the 1841 census - together with any other children of the couple please...

Many thanks for your assistance.

Regards.

Hi

Thanks for this... how very odd though?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Descendents of John continued to use the name Rothwell... ... ...

I can see that Cronkshaw could easily become Crankshaw when transcribed - but what a wierd name for Priscilla.......

Thanking you - again -

Another case of bad writing You can see it should be Priscilla with hindsight, but if the transcriber didn't know he would put what he sees

Hi

That's great thanks again.

I don't think my writing would improve either filling out those forms all day long... I've considered doing some transcribing - but I'm not sure I could transcribe accurately enough...
